We had the rattan-style sets - similar to what Mouse describes above. The set came with a square table with a lift off lid.

Mousie you have always been the voice of reason on here. Very happy that you are moving forward and wishing you all the best with whatever the future holds.

We used to do a few long-term rentals to EDF/ERDF contractors who were working at the Golfech power station. Might be worth checking if that's what they are doing?
